I'm an active developer for LaTeX, most notably with the package siunitx for formatting numbers and units. In my day job I work as a chemist, and so you'll see I write a number of chemistry-related LaTeX packages. I'm also a member of the LaTeX3 Project, working on improving LaTeX with the eventual aim of producing LaTeX3. To keep people up to date with my TeX work and anything else TeX-related I see, I have a blog on TeX matters. I'm also keen on helping other TeX users, and so I try to watch the various places that people go for help. I'm also on the committee of the UK TeX Users' Group. So I pop up all over the TeX world!

For the avoidance of doubt, any code of mine that I publish on http://tex.stackexchange.com/ I hereby place in the public domain to the extent governable by law. Explicitly, I place it under the CC0

comment Can I use an easy programming language with XeTeX?
Broad answer 'no', but look at LaTeX3's expl3 language as a richer set of tools built on top of TeX.

comment IC50 with curve fit line and value of IC50 appear on the graph using pgfplot
Most of us are not familiar with IC50 plots: could you link to an example?

Welcome to TeX.sx! This question is very similar to tex.stackexchange.com/questions/29381/…. Please take a look at it as the information there might help you. If so, that's great, and we'll probably close this question as a duplicate just to keep the place tidy and to help people find answers quickly. If not, please edit your question here to explain why so that people can better focus their attention to help you.

Possibly not related, but you should not include file extensions in the \includegraphics line.

As it stands, this is 'too localized' as there is not an example or any of the other things we need to help. Request reopening after an edit.

comment How can I produce a document with Gujarati language in LaTeX?
As it stands, this is 'Not A Real Question' as it's very open. If it can be made a bit more focussed then it can be reopened.

comment Pgfplots: title covers scientific notation
While pgfplots ability to 'divide through' is handy, for a 'proper' presentation of data I would recommend dividing though as part of the axis itself (e.g. '$z/10^5$ with appropriate expression used for the data).
